Graduation Requirements

Co-op programs require at least eight 4-month terms of full-time study, and the satisfactory completion of two or three 4-month work terms, as specified by the particular program.

To maintain good standing in Co-op, maintain eligibility for a work term, and to receive certification for work term completion upon graduation, you must:

  • Meet all of the normal requirements for the Honours BA or BSc
  • Follow the course of studies outlined for your program;
  • Complete the non-academic requirements and any other prerequisites for the work term required by your program;
  • Complete co-op course requirements (COPD01 and COPD03) prior to your first work term;
  • Complete COPD11 when seeking your first work term;
  • Complete COPD12 when seeking your second work term;
  • Complete COPD13 when seeking your third work term (if required);
  • Maintain a cGPA of at least 2.50. This is higher than the cGPA required to fulfil Honours BA or Honours BSc requirements in other non-co-op programs
  • Receive a satisfactory evaluation for all work term performance evaluations and work term projects;
  • Register as a full-time student during study terms (defined as a course load in each study term of at least 1.5 FCEs and normally 2.5 FCEs);
  • Return to studies after each work term; and
  • Remit co-op fees as charged by the University.
